Rudolph Cupcakes

It’s hard to resist Rudolph at the best of times, but if he’s on the top of a chocolate cupcake then we stand no chance. Children between three and seven should be able to line the muffin tin, stir the mixture and spread the icing. From the age of seven and upwards kids should be able to make the cakes with assistance but will still need help with the oven and hot tin. All children will love decorating. Pop the decorative bits into bowls to give your kids the freedom to do the cupcakes themselves, and remember to leave some out for Santa as an extra special treat. Here’s the recipe!
